Today, Representative Mike Michaud issued the following statement in reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on United States v. Windsor:

"I applaud the justices for striking down the discriminatory ban that prohibits legally-married same-sex couples and their children in states like Maine from receiving all of the rights, protections and responsibilities marriage affords. I was proud to speak out publicly for the freedom to marry when Question 1 was on the ballot last year, and I was personally proud to vote "Yes' to allow all loving, committed couples in our state to obtain a marriage license."
